Cher, Billie Holiday, Bette Davis, Eartha Kitt, Stevie Nicks, Diana Ross or Elvis Presley -- you never quite know who's going to show up when vocal/visual impersonator Jimmy James opens his mouth. Initially famous for his spot-on tribute to Marilyn Monroe, James has blossomed into one of the most dazzling and versatile performers on the planet, not only acting like icons of stage and screen, but singing like them, too. In addition to his impressions, James is blessed with an amazing voice all his own, most recently showcased in the Billboard-charting hit single, "Fashionista." Now this true vocal phenomenon and Glammy Award-winner makes a rare San Francisco appearance for Jimmy James Live!, a one-night-only engagement at Rebel. Learn More

“Their cadence is so sensual that it’s virtually irresistible!” —Miami Sun-Sentinel

The fifth of the series of multi-cultural outdoor concerts brings violins and flutes weaving lilting melodies against the backdrop of driving Afro-Cuban rhythms. From the first note, you’ll want to jump out of your seat. The orchestra’s repertoire ranges from traditional Danzón and Cha-Cha-Cha to the latest salsa and timba grooves with surprising twists: you should hear their spin on the old church tune “Golden Slippers.” As one critic put it: “Imagine a blend of Tito Puente and a tango, and you’ll begin to get an idea of the power and beauty of this music.”
The dance floor will be set, a pre-event Latin dance instruction will get you in the mood and, cocktails, dinners from Sol Food available on-site, dancing, and playground makes for fun for the whole family. All outdoors under Marin skies.
This is an outdoor concert. Please dress accordingly.
Beer, wine, signature cocktails, juice, standard assortment of non-alcoholic drinks, sweets, savories, treats and dinners are available for purchase._
